Hi all it may be a while before I start this as I have a 1/8 corvette stingray coming and I'm entering it in a big scale gb so that will take priority.
Anyway I thought this looked like a great kit with loads of potential for improving it, so here are a few pics of what you get in the kit, it was a chrissy present from my bro (thanks again jim)

Woo hoo! I always wanted to do a wooden ship model and this sort of project is definitely 'my cup of tea.' Looking forward to seeing what you do with this

Hi all, well where do I start, I knew this would be a challenge (never tried this type of kit before) well if I do another, and that's a big if, I will change somethings there are no tabs just gluing edge to edge with the cardboard also they've modelled it with a flat deck (As we all know they're not they're curved to allow the water to run off) I've adjusted that the cardboard is very soft and thin also there is a bend into the middle of the hull template in order to fit it in the box since I've glued the hull together the sides toward the stern have gone concave so will have to unglue those and make some formers for ti to keep it out, I would suggest to future builders you trace the parts out not thicker and stiffer cardboard and add some tabs to increase the strength and make gluing easier.
Anyway here is where I am now .

Hi all here's the next update.



I figure I will matchstick all the sides then sand them all down smooth and paint it rusty white or black also I intend to make the masts and stuff out of other materials

Planking, whether the literal application on a ship or the 'core building' exercise that physiotherapists make you do, is a huge hassle. Kudo's for your tenacity!!
